The Tammy Howl, a magazine for the alumnae as well as the 
students of Gulf Park College, has three co-editors for the 1968-69 
school year. Since the Tammy Howl is published three times a year, 
each editor has taken the responsibility of editing one issue. Cathy 
Latham, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy W. Latham of Columbia, Ten- 
nessee, is the chief editor for the December issue. Taking the editor 
position for the May issue is LeMoine Otjen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
W. J. Otjen, Jr., of Enid, Oklahoma. Diane Stewart, daughter of Mr. 
and Mrs. G. H. Stewart, of Florence, South Carolina, is the chief edi- 
tor of the August issue. 

The Tammy Howl is extremely lucky to have Mrs. Mary Black- 
well, who is originally from Jackson, Mississippi, but now makes her 
home in Long Beach, for its sponsor. She not only teaches here at Gulf 
Park, but also at Jefferson Davis Junior College. 

The editors and the sponsor, along with a very enthusiastic 
staff, are working to create an enjoyable Tammy Howl for everyone.

It has been most gratifying to receive such good reports 
on the aptitudes and attitudes of the students on campus this 
year; I wish to congratulate you. 

Special thanks go to the Sophomores for the mature 
leadership which they have shown since the beginning of the 
year. The Panhellenic Council gave a great deal of time to 
their sororities and moved away from the high school "Hell 
day" to the collegiate "help day." The new class and club officers 
were very wisely selected and are aiming toward excellence. 

The Faculty of your college is the best qualified one that 
I have seen in my tenure at Gulf Park. I can assure you that 
they are very interested in doing everything possible to prepare 
you for your role in life. 

We are making every attempt to modernize the curricu- 
la and the physical plant. It is our hope that we will be able 
to continue the renovations of Hardy Hall this summer and 
that you will be one of the lucky ones to get a "new" room. 

Judging from the good beginning we have made thus far, 
I have every reason to believe that this will be the best year in 
the history of Gulf Park College. 



Marine Lt. William W. Riggs, 
whose wife lives in Pass Christian, 
Miss., and who is fighting in the 
jungles of South Vietnam around 
Phu Bai, wanted everybody to 
know about his first wedding an- 
niversary. He arranged to have 
a portable billboard stationed on 
Hwy. 90 at Pass Christian. Riggs 
is with K Co., Third Battalion, 
Fifth Marines. His wife is the 
former Sydney Elaine Jones of 
New Orleans and Pass Christian. 
She is a graduate of Gulf Park 
College, Long 1 Beach. They have 
a two-month-old son.

As you view the wind-swept shores in front of Hardy 
Hall you know that you have made the right choice. Stepping 
through the gates a feeling of warmth sweeps in. It is as 
though a voice were saying, "Welcome, we have been waiting 
for you." The arms of the Friendship Oak reach out and take 
you in. 

The year of 1968-69 I feel will be one of Gulf Park's 
greatest. With a great deal of high hopes, enthusiasm, coop- 
eration, and endless energy and a group of girls with new 
ideas and concern, I feel that the student body can progress 
a long way in accomplishing its expected goals. 

My fondest wish is that through our unified efforts and 
many experiences we will have benefited from being on the 
campus and that Gulf Park will be a better college by 
reason of our having passed this way. 

Welcome, and the best of luck to you all!

Miss Michael (Mickie) Harper, 
who was voted campus favorite 
at Gulf Park College, Long Beach, 
has become a stewardess with 
World Airways of Oakland, Calif., 
the largest charter airline in the 
world. She is now flying to Eur- 
ope and the Far East, accompany- 
ing large tourist groups in World's 
fleet of Boeing 707 jets. She 
graduated in 1966 from Gulf Park 
and went for two years to the 
University of Texas. 

Friday, Sept. 13, 1968 
Dear Col. Wink: 

Maybe I shouldn't write you to- 
day seeing that it is Friday, the 
13th. I found a short newspaper 
article and thought I would send 
it to you. It's sort of weird as 
compared to a "military view." 

How have you been? Still eating 
those apples for lunch? I think 
of you quite often, Col. Wink; and 
I miss Gulf Park so very much. 
Really I wish I were there now 
instead of the University of Ken- 

This summer I met a man 
named Valkenburg, who is a world 
renowned geographer, at the Phi 
Theta Kappa Institute. I com- 
mented to him and Mrs. Nosal, 
along with several others, that he 
reminded me of you — just like 
a great big "teddy bear." Of 
course, I never heard the end of it. 
I thought he was a wonderful man, 
an excellent lecturer, just like the 
man he reminded me of — you. 

I think of you and GPC so 
often, especially when I see all 
the other girls up here from 
school — Linda Wills, Judy Grose- 
close, Kathleen Keiter, Ellen Mott, 
Lucy Carol Johnson and Carolyn 
Kirby. Patti Gesler is now an air- 
line stewardess. Sandy Shoemaker 
underwent major surgery (emer- 
gency) last week, but she is doing 
fine now. Mitzi Tate is attending 
Transylvania College here in Lex- 

Guess I better close now. Please 
give Dean Johnson, Mrs. Ferrell 
and Mrs. Lumpkin my sincerest 
regards and tell them I'll be writ- 
ing very soon. Best of luck 
throughout this year. Give your 
classes my regards and tell them 
I wish I were sitting there with 

Love ya, 



Let Me not forget Mrs. Perdue 
by any means.

I went to the machine and put my dime in 
I pushed the Coke button and the machine, it did spin. 
Down came the ice and the Coke was poured up, 
But lo and behold, where was the cup?

As tradition serves, the new 
school year began with a dance 
called the Mixer. Invitations were 
sent to boys attending Jefferson 
Davis and those at Keesler's AFB 
and the Seabee's Base. Tables 
were set up around the school 
auditorium and the stage was 
transformed into a band stand. 
Within a few hours, Gulf Park 
was converted into a teenage dis- 
coteque. Most everyone had a good 

The next school dance was held 
on October 19. This party seemed 
to have a better turn out than the 
first one and the atmosphere was 
even more perfect for a night of 
fun and dance. 

The officers at Keesler have ar- 
ranged to invite Gulf Park to a 
dance every two weeks. A bus is 
sent to pick up those girls at- 
tending. The dress is casual. Most 
of the girls really seem to enjoy 
these dances, although they say 
that they out-number the boys. 

All of the girls are anticipat- 
ing the coming Thanksgiving and 
Christmas dances. Both are to be 
held the weekend before the holi- 

This year is going to be really 
great at Gulf Park and we, the 
students, intend to make the 
coming dances the best Gulf Park 
has ever had!!

freshmen, Sharon Murphy, Jayne Houghland and Polly

Gulf Park has added to its fac- 
ulty nine new ambitious teach- 
ers. Most of the new teachers are 
from Mississippi. 

Mrs. Julianne Boyd, the public 
speaking and dramatics teacher is 
originally from Pennsylvania. She 
graduated from Adelphi in Garden 
City, New York, where she worked 
in the Adelphi Summer Theatre 
for two years. Before coming to 
Gulf Park she spent two years in 
New York City. She is presently 
in Gulfport with her husband, a 
dentist in the Air Force. 

Mrs. Mary Blackwell, the Eng- 
lish teacher is from Jackson, Mis- 
sissippi. She graduated from the 
University of Mississippi, where 
she earned her BA and MA. Mrs. 
Blackwell has taught the 9th and 
10th grades at Yazoo High School 
in Yazoo City, Mississippi, also 
she taught at Jefferson Davis 
Junior College. 

A new face to students but a 
familiar face to the faculty is 
that of Mrs. Dot Merdinger. Mrs. 
Merdinger taught at Gulf Park 
three years ago. She has taught 

privately for the past three years 
after the year that was spent at 
Gulf Park. Mrs. Merdinger gradu- 
ated from Sullins and studied in 
London for two years with Sad- 
lers' Wells Ballet School. She 
danced with Robert Jeoffrey's 
Radio City Music Hall and with 
Charles Weidman Modern Dance. 
Mrs. Merdinger is from the the 
Mississippi Delta. 

Miss Jane Bruce Wilder is our 
new equestrian teacher, also from 
Mississippi. She was graduated 
from Stephens' College in Colum- 
bia, Missouri, with her AA, and 
from the University of Southern 
Mississippi with her BS. For the 
past three years Miss Wilder has 
taught in a public high school in 

Mrs. Rita Balch who works with 
reading skills graduated from the 
University of Southern Mississippi 
with her BA and did graduate 
work at the University of Michi- 
gan and Stanford. She taught 
study skills at Stanford and Eng- 
lish at Granby High School, Vir- 
ginia. Mrs. Balch was the leading 
consultant at Humboldt College 
and worked in educational psy- 
chology at Michigan State. She 
taught reading and study skills 
at Jefferson Davis Junior College, 

and lives in Long Beach with her 
husband and two sons. 

Mrs. Susan Bagwill, a new 
teacher in the retail merchandis- 
ing department, graduated from 
Sacred Heart College in Grand 
Coteau, Louisiana, where she re- 
ceived her BA. She was an as- 
sistant buyer for D. H. Holmes 
Company in New Orleans before 
coming to Gulf Park.

iversity of Southern Mississippi 
where she received her BS and is 
now working on her Masters in 
Education. Miss Nybo has traveled 
in England, Ireland and Scotland.

Caveat Emptor, meaning "let 
the buyer beware," is a new or- 
ganization at Gulf Park College. 
It is open to those students in 
Retail Merchandising who wish to 
pursue attractive careers of buy- 
ing and selling in the retail busi- 
ness. The emblem of the organiza- 
tion was designed by Miss Laura 
Wilkinson and was presented for 
the first time on place cards 
when the dinner was held at the 

A year of long anticipated ex- 
citement and growth has begun 
with a bang in the new Retail 
Merchandising Department at Gulf 
Park. On Wednesday night, Sep- 
tember 18, a delightful dinner was 
held at the Broadwater Marina in 
order that the enrolled students 
and faculty participating in the 
program might get acquainted. 

During the month of October, 
the Merchandising students were 
still on the go. Sophomore stu- 
dents in the department, under 
the direction of Miss Helen Pick- 
iing, were responsible for carrying 
out the fashion, show in Assembly 
on October 2 entitled "Self Real- 
ization Through Clothes." On Oc- 
tober 25 the twelve Merchandis- 
ing students and chaperones, Mrs. 

Bagwell and Miss Brock, depart- 
ed for Dallas to attend one of the 
largest apparel markets in the 
world. The trip consisted of five 
days of exciting experiences which 
were both fun-filled and reward- 
ing. Other points of interest seen 
through guided tours were Nei- 
man-Marcus, the city of Houston, 
and the Astrodome. 

Selling internships began on 
November 18 and will continue 
through December 20. Each stu- 
dent will work on a full-time basis 
of forty paid hours per Kveek. 
This actual on-the-job experience 
is vital to one who wishes to enter 
the retail business. The following 
local stores are participating: 
Brumfield's, Dorothy Brown Shop, 
Ellis Salloum's. Fasold's, Gayfer's, 
Godchaux, Ideal Shop, La Bou- 
tique, Northrop's, Penney's, Purple 
Lantern, and Shamis'. 

An employee whose personal ap- 
pearance and manners are such 
that she will be an asset wherever 
she works, is a must. Therefore, 
a Personal Appearance Clinic is 
provided so that there will be an 
emphasis on good grooming, pos- 
ture, and proper etiquette. Since 
a cultural background is also es- 
sential in business and community 
life, the students attend special 
programs, plays and operas in 
New Orleans and on the Coast.

When dramatized by William 
Gibson the rebirth of Helen Kel- 
ler becomes a very demanding 
play for the .students of Gulf 
Park. The Miracle Worker is the 
remarkable, true story of a deaf, 
dumb and blind child who through 
the actions of her teacher, Annie 
Sullivan, is brought into the nor- 
mal world. Presented on Novem- 
ber 20, 21, 22 and 23 under the di- 
rection of Miss Helen Picking, The 
Miracle Worker brought well 
earned praises to the drama de- 

The opening scenes depict Helen 
Keller's infant sickness which 
causes her disabilities. Helen's 
parents, Capt. and Mrs. Keller, 
are ably played by Mr. James 
Maxwell and Melissa Huston. 
After many years of useless dis- 
hearting searching for help for 
the tantrumes Helen, vividly por- 
trayed by Lynn Coleman, a teach- 
er is hired. The only person who 
is able to "unlock the little safe 
with the unknown treasure inside" 
Helen's teacher, Annie Sullivan, is 
personified by Patti Schrader. 

The early rehearsals could eas- 
ily have been mistaken as sequent 
ces from Batman. The slam-BANG, 
Pow, Zip, - Zot knock down drag- 
out struggles resulted in enumer- 
able bruises for both Pati and 
Lynn. For realism the fights be- 
tween Helen and her teacher had 
to be actual blows which the ac- 
tors often felt through their pad- 
ding. When The Miracle Worker 
was first produced in October of 
1959, there was much publicity 
about the realism used, even dur- 
ing rehearsals of the fight scenes 
between Anne Bancroft and Patty 

Supporting: roles were played 
by Betsy Hogg as Aunt Ev, Roz- 
zie Bird as the Maid Viney, Mr. 
Anaganos by Mr. Edward M. 
Craig, and Tom Merchant as 
James Keller. Bobby Johnson, 
Kathi Abrahamson, Prliddy Hut- 
ton, Mary Craig, LeMoine Otjen 
and Gayle Maurin completed the 

As there were four men in the 
early life of Helen Keller so were 
there four in the lives of the cast 
for The Miracle Worker. Mr. Jim 
Maxwell who had the male lead 
as Capt. Keller is an attorney for 
the Employment and Securities 
Division of the State of Miss. His 
wife is the former Gulf Park 
music teacher Miss Archer. They 
reside in Gulfport with a five year 
old son. Mr. Maxwell has partici- 
pated in dramatic productions 
while in college at Ole'Miss, the 
Gulf Coast Theatre of Arts and 
the Gulfport Little Theatre. He 
has portrayed Colonel Pickering 

in My Fair Lady; and Capt. Cook 
in The Barretts of Wimpole Street. 
He also had roles in The Moon 
Is Blue, Student Prince, Teahouse 
of the August Moon, and one prev- 
ious experience at Gulf Park in 
The Merry Wives of Windsor. Mr. 
Maxwell says he very much en- 
joys being in Gulf Park produc- 
tions because of the excellent di- 

Mr. Edward M. Craig has seen 
most of the Gulf Park dramatic 
presentations and thinks it is now 
nice to be in one. Mr. Craig played 
the role of Mr. Anaganos but be- 
tween scenes he kept an eye on 
his 12 year old daughter Maiy 
who also had a part in The Mir- 
acle Worker. Besides Mary he has 
two sons and four grandchildren. 
While living in Pass Christian Mr. 
Craig has participated in the 
Gulf Coast Theatre of Arts as 
Edward Barrett in The Barretts of 
Wimpole Street, the Gulf Coast 
Little Theatre as Patsy in Three 
Men On a Horse and the Bay St. 
Louis Theatre as Petrovin in An- 
astasia. Being 1 an Engineer for 
General Electric Company has 
given Mr. Craig the opportunity 
for travel and thereby permitted 
him to be active in theatres in 
Denver, California, New York and 

The part of James Keller was 
filled by a young Keesler Air 
Force Officer, Tom Merchant. He 
graduated from Milton College in 
Wisconsin with a BA in theatre 
and continued his studies there 
for one more year in graduate 


school before joining the Air 
Force as a newswriter at the Of- 
fice of Information. Tom was in 
many college productions, and also 
in summer stock at the Green 
Ram Theatre of Wisconsin. Mr. 
Merchant said, "After once leav- 
ing college and joining the Air 
Force it is fun to get back to 
college life." He feels that this is 
his world because it is young and 
alive. He thought The Miracle 
Worker was a good opportunity 
for him, especially at an exciting; 
college like Gulf Park. Tom's wife 
is now teaching high school Eng- 
lish and Tom hopes to joini her 
in the profession by teaching 
drama at the college level as soon 
as he leaves the Air Force. 

Bobby Johnson, age 7, from the 
second grade at Jeff Davis Ele- 
bentary, son of Dean and Mrs. 
Johnson, represented Percy, a 
young negro servant of the Kel- 
lers. Bobby's former experience 
entails a part in last year's Christ- 
program where he had to kick 
Coca. He feels his part in The 
Miracle Worker was hard because 
he had to appear in four different 
scenes. In one scene he had to 
watch them bring a ladder to get 
Annie out of her locked room. 
Bobby can't read yet but he says 
he had no problem learning his 
lines, just problems in saying 
them loud enough. Mr. Johnson 
seemed to like it best when he 
could go to the back of the audi- 
torium and play with a brigfht 
orange rubber ball.

If by any chance one wandered 
into the speech workshop and 
found a dimly lighted room with 
checkered clothed tables, heard 
the sipping of cokes and the 
munching of popcorn, one had 
arrived at Gulf Park's "in crowd ' 
review. The Dance, Drama and 
Music Departments were present- 
ing its annual review which this 
year was entitled WRITHE FIVE. 
Ihis lively, mad, mod review was 
a take-off on the NOW GENERA- 
TION with sketches of gerus, 
"pot", hyppies, education, campus 
life, and blind dates. Along with 
the Gulf Park girls, nine MALES

Gulf Park's theatrical group, 
Jet Maskers, has been busy this 
year. Their past two stage produc- 
tions, Rive Five and the Miracle 
Worker, were tremendous succes- 
ses (especially at Keesler). But 
that is not all! ! Under the super- 
vision of their sponsors, Mrs. 
Boyd and Miss Picking, the group 
is planning a trip to New Orleans 
to see a live stage production in 
January. They are also planning 
a Christmas party where the 
members can display their talents 
in various skits. 

On November 12, the fabulous 
Mac Gibbs was the honorable 
guest at a Jet Maskers meeting 
where he gave the group a lesson 
in the art of stage makeup.

ened the normally female stage 
with their voices, songs and 

From the Gulf Park student 
body were Laura Asplin, Suzie 
Cole, Cathy Gurnsey, Nancy Grif- 
fith, Kay Neely, Muffet Triggs, 
Bette Norwood, and Donna Thomp- 
son along, with JenJ Bernadoni 
Curt Dearmin, Mike Hogan, Steve 
Nylus, John Philipe and Gary 
Turner from the Keesler Male 
Chorus. The success of the three 
night performance would have 
been impossible without the direc- 
tion and assistance of Mrs. Juli- 
anne Boyd, Miss Helen Picking, 
Mrs. Dot Merdinger and Mr. Don- 
ald Christmas. The Jet Maskers' 
Club sold refreshments, painted 
scenery, altered costumes and 
other various things any produc- 
tion would call for. 

Mrs. Boyd felt the combination 
of drama sketches with song and 
dance gave the girls a chance to 
bone up on their acting and the 
student body an idea of the ac- 
tiveness of the group. If WRITHE 
FIVE was any indication of what 
is to come, Gulf Park has great 
expectations for the coming sea-

There are about twenty-seven 
energetic singing girls who take 
pride in being a member of the

could be the best college singing 
group on the Coast.

Students and faculty of Gulf 
Park Colleige were entertained 
this fall by the Spanish dances of 
Teresa Torkanouwky and the 
music of her guitarist, Jim Woods, 
of New Orleans; Teresa delighted 
her audience with the presenta- 
tion of four spirited dances. These 
were variations of classical and 
Flamenco dances: the Jeta, a 
peasant folk dance; the Soleares, 
a more solemn dance; the Aleg- 
rias, a gay dance of rapid foot- 
work; and the Sevillia which was 
done in classical form. She was 
accompanied in three of these 
dances by Jim's guitar. The classi- 
cal form was accompanied by pi- 
ano. Jim also played two Flamen- 
co numbers. 

Teresa has staged a number of 
Spanish dances in New Orleans. 
She was joined in these perform- 
ances by her group of local stu- 
dents, including her daughter 

Teresa has completed a six week 
introductory Spanish dancing 
course with a group of Gulf Park 
students here at the dance studio. 
She plans to return in January for 
a ten week course which will be

The week of Rush began at 7 
o'clock the night of September 23 
•when the student body split into 
three sections and went to their 
first informal parties. The girls, 
upon arriving at Hardy, were 
greeted by Kappa Chi; at Eliza- 
beth by Delta Alpha; and at Lloyd 
by Sigma Psi. After the girls 
were introduced to the officers and 
other actives, they then proceeded 
to fill out information sheets. The 
rest of the time was spent talking 
to the actives and enjoying the 
refreshments while looking through 
the scrapbooks and over the a- 
wards won the preceding year. 
The same procedure took place 
again when the girls went to 
their second and last rush party 
for that night. 

Tuesday night followed the same 
schedule as Monday night with the 
changing of the sororities to Delta 
Chi in Hardy, Theta Alpha in 
Elizabeth, and Gamma Psi in 
Lloyd. Wednesday, Thursday and 
Friday nights were devoted to the 
sororities' skits, performed in the 
auditorium and speech workshop. 
On Wednesday night, Delta Alpha 
carried out the theme of "Hey, 
Look Us Over," playing several 
visiting young 1 men looking over 
the girls on Gulf Park campus, 
who came to the conclusion that 
the Delta Alpha girls were the 
best. Theta Alpha also carried 
the theme that night of "There's 
Nothing Fishy About Theta Al- 
pha." They showed how the ac- 
tives opened up their hearts in a 
lively, jovial, frolicsome way to 
the rushees by trying to make 
them feel a part of the group. 
Thursday night Gamma Psi enter- 
tained in "Hernando's Hideaway" 
with the Roaring 20s set in a 
scene of ragtime and blues. "Wel- 
come to Deltachisia Land," the 
theme of Delta Chi portrayed the 
first few days of a college girl and 
how she decided on Delta Chi as 
the sorority of her choice. Friday 
night brought with it Sigma Psi 
carrying out the theme of the 
perfect isle in the South Pacific, 
"Sigma Isle," where some college 
girls found out all about college 
life and what a sorority really 
means. Kappy Chi brought rush 
week to a close as its actives 
acted out sisterhood, fun, know- 
ledge, friendship, and the inner 
treasure by their theme, "En- 
chanted Isle of Kappa Chi." So 
ended a wonderful week, and the 
starting of many friendships.

Rat Day was held at Gulf Park 
College on October 12, 1968. 
Many proud rushees, attired in 
their grubbiest old clothes with 
their hair braided up into count- 
less pigtails, became actives of 
their chosen sorority. 

Each of the six sororities, Delta 
Alpha, Delta Chi, Kappa Chi, 
Gamma Psi, Sigma Psi, and 
Theta Alpha, under the Panhel- 
Ienic Council, planned various 
"jobs" for their pledges to do. 
The Delta Alphas had the respon- 
sibility of cleaning out the Y-Hut 
along with the Delta Chiis scrub- 
bing out the new Panhellenic 
House. Gamma Psis had the 
pleasure of cleaning out the Fresh- 
man Fountain with toothbrushes, 
While the Kappa Chis picked up 
all the acrons under the Friend- 
ship Oak. While all this was tak- 
ing place, the Sigma Psis swept 
the entire driveway, and the Theta 
Alphas picked up trash from the

Gulf Park was privileged to 
hear NBC's chief Far Eastern 
correspondent, Wells Hangen, 
speak for more than an hour on 
the overall situation in the Far 
East, on Monday, October 21, 1968. 
Following Mr. Hangen's address 
pertinent questions by the audi- 
ence centered not only on Viet- 
nam, but also other countries, in- 
cluding Red China, Thailand, Ber- 
lin, Israel, and Czechoslavakia. 

Mr. Hangen, who has returned 
recently to the United States 
from a three and a half year duty 
tour in Asia, cited hope for solv- 
ing the war in Vietnam, but stated 
there could be no decisive victory 
for either side. Both he felt, 
could reconcile issues without 
suffering too great a loss. 

Mr. Hangen also dispelled the 
domino theory and stated flatly 
that the United States must take 
cognizance of its abilities in the 
light of its commitments over the 
world, make an evaluation and 
act accordingly. Not only did Mr. 
Hangen's speech bring us to date 
on world issues but also opened 
for us new patterns of thought. 

A reception was held in Hardy 
Hall following Mr. Hangen's talk. 
An arrangement of chrysanthe- 
mums adorned the serving table 
of lace cloth. On Tuesday, before 
returning by plane to Washington, 
D. C, Mr. Hangen was to complete 
a tour of part of the Coast, es- 
corted by Dean Johnson.

Many times as the sun sets on 
Gulf Park, the music building 
lights up and Don Christmas be- 
gins his many hours of practice. 
The results of these practices were 
finally appreciated by the students 
and faculty under Friendship Oak 
early this October. 

The concert contained a group 
of songs written by Dave Bru- 
beck and interpreted by Mr.

This year the Action Club has 
been formed for all students in- 
terested in sociology. The club has 
become involved in several com- 
munity projects including work- 
ing with retarded children, super- 
vising children's activities, teach- 
ing children's interdenominational 
Sunday School and helping those 
recuperating from mental illness 
in a social and recreational set- 

The following officers have been 
elected; Nancy Lou Dennis, Presi- 
dent; Bunny Wilson, Program 
Committee; Denby Franklin, Ser- 
vice Committee Chairman; and 
Kathy Kuntz, Publicity.

The Secretarial Science Club 
was organized as a social activity 
for the members of the business 
department. At the beginning of 
the year, members of the club 
published the annual student di- 
rectory, containing names, ad- 
dresses and telephone numbers of 
students attending Gulf Park Col- 
lege. The club also co-sponsors the 
annual spring fashion revue. The 
final activity of the Secretarial 
Science Club is to sponsor an 
early evening boat ride from Gulf- 
port to Biloxi then to Ship Is- 
land and back. With Miss Brock 
as sponsor and Betty Isles as 
president, the club will surely 
have an exciting year laid out for 


Christmas. Mr. Christmas' feelings 
for music were impressed upon all 
who watched and listened as he 
played. The concert was an ex- 
ample of the age old saying "Prac- 
tice makes perfect," which Mr. 
Christmas exemplified well. 

The audience was left with a 
better understanding of Mr. Bru- 
beck's purpose in writing music 
and a realization of Mr. Christ- 
mas' superb talents.

I took a walk down the highway one night, 

And viewed the world in a whole new light. 

I walked and walked, oh so far — 

And was almost flattened by a speeding car.

the dead animals on the highway?"

One of the most interesting 
trips made by the girls of Gulf 
Park each year is the one to 
Ship Island, a small island off the 
Mississippi Coast. 

On a beautiful Sunday, Septem- 
ber 22, they embarked for the is- 
land by a fascinating ferry trip 
from the Gulfport, Mississippi 
harbor. Upon reaching the island 

all the students gathered in "Fort 
Massachusetts," an old fort used 
in the Civil War, to sing songs 
and to listen to an impromptu 
sermon given by Dean Johnson. 
Lunch followed these activities 
and the girls could soon be seen 
enjoying the sun and the surf of 
the beautiful island. Many happy 
but very sunburned girls returned 
to Gulf Park later that afternoon 
with a clearer understanding of 
why the trip to Ship Island is a 
traditional event.

A group of 150 very sleepy, 
but very excited girls embarked 
on a dream-filled weekend at Pen- 
sacola Naval Air Station, Pensaco- 
la, Florida, on Saturday, Oct. 3. 

After the girls arrived and met 
their escorts, they set out for a 
fun-filled afternoon of football by 
attending the Navy-Marine game. 

The evening festivities began 
with the girls and their dates at- 
tending dinner in the commissioned 
officers' dining hall. Following 
dinner everyone was taken to the 
Mustin Beach Officers' Club where 
they were welcomed by the base 
Commander to the Regimental 
Ball. Two great bands and the 
Men's Glee Club entertained the 
guests, with the evening being 
completed by the selection of a 
Queen's Court. Carol Craven and 
her escort, Jim Abrams were 
chosen "Mr. and Miss America." 

On Sunday the girls and their 
escorts attended breakfast and 
church services together. In the 
afternoon they rounded out the 
weekend by attending a beach 
party at Mustin Beach where 
dancing and swimming were en- 
joyed by all. Later that afternoon 
the girls boarded their buses for 
the return trip to Gulf Park with 
many fond memories.

interest in horses, elected Kathy 
Murphy as Presiident, Eleanor 
Highbaugh as Vice-President, Lou 
Thompson as Secretary, Rozzie 
Bird as Treasurer, and Susan

At the St. Martin's Charity Horse 
Show in New Orleans the girls are 
reported to have had a nice time 
but returned empty handed for 
their efforts. 

The Folsom Charity Horse Show, 

in Folsom, Louisiana, proved more 
profitable. Jan Cooper placed third

horses, returning to campus with 
two reserve championship ribbons 
and a ninth place ribbon. In the

I went for a walk in the forest one day 

To watch the animals all at play. 

They laughed and they talked just to me 

A happier sight, you never would see. 

We danced and we played all the day through 

Till the sun went down and the morning sprung dew.

I pity a person that reaches out into life to find any happi- 
ness. For it is only through sorrow can we find real joy. Only 
the blind can see the true beauty of shapes and colors. Only 
the crippled may sense the excitement of running across a 
hot road on a warm summer's day. It is the childless wife 
who understands the sweetness of a baby's lonely cry, and 
the deaf only who realize the meaning of every word spoken. 
Life is filled with joy, but it can not truly be lived until it 
has something to live for. 





The Yuletide Season at Gulf 
Park College was a festive time 
of merrymaking. The spirit began 
December 6th at midnight when 
all the girls were snug in their 
beds. Messengers from the Stu- 
dent Government visited each dor- 
mitory, gathering the girls and 
house mothers to Hardy Recep- 
tion Room. The surprise — a 
beautiful Christmas tree, adorned 
with lights, ornaments, and a 
shiny bright star crowning the 
ecerscent vision. To close the per- 
fect evening there was hot choc- 
olate, cookies, and the joyous 
sound of familiar carols. 

The following Sunday, Decem- 
ber 8th, was the annual tea given 
by the Student Government for 
the faculty, staff, and members of 
the board. All of the local min- 
isters were also cordially invited. 

December 13th, the sororities 
entertained the underprivileged 
children of the Gulf Coast Salva- 
tion Army with a Christmas party. 
The cheery gathering, complete 
with a tree, gifts, refreshments, 
and many new friendships, was 
honored by the presence of a 
special host, Jolly Saint Nick 

The most exciting event of the 
Yuletide Setason at Gulf Park 
was the Christmas Ball . . . Held 
on December 14 it was an occa- 
sion fondly remembered by all 
attending. From the girls in their 
formal attire, to the red, green 
and gold trim about the room 
and of course the music provided 
by George Wood's Soul Band, the 
affair was a success. 

From the decorating of the 
tree to the banquet and the Glee 
Club caroling the eve before, the 
holidays began surely you agree 
. . . Happiness truly was the 
Christmas Spirit at Gulf Park

Donna Milner 


I cleaned my heart out yesterday, 

I forced myself to throw away 

All the past, foolish hoard 

Of memories and dreams 

Which I'd stored. 

Courageously I cleared each room 

Sweeping it with Reason's own broom 

Til every little corner was bare 

Not even a memory was 

Left lingering there, 

No dreams, no cluttered 

Could - have - beens. 

And then I discovered 

You'd crept back in.
